Rev 3:8 – I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
This was the passage we read in the sermon at church. To tell you the truth, I don’t remember much of the pastor’s sermon, but this verse spoke to me.
I find it interesting that God gave a wonderful promise to a church with little strength. In other words, they were weak. I am supposing that it was neither a prominent church nor a church with great accomplishments. It sounds like our church…The only thing going for the church in Philadelphia was that they kept Godâ€™s Word, and did not deny the name of Jesus. I’m not sure if our church is 100% there, but let’s just give us the benefit of the doubt.
I pray that God will open a door for our church that no one can shut. No matter how strong the opposition, and how weak we may be, God will make sure the door is kept open. That would be tremendous!
I’m not sure what an open door from God would look like for our church, but there seems to be a possible door opening recently… but I don’t know if it’s God who is opening the door. I rest in this verse that if it is God, no one can close it. And if God shuts it, no one can open it.
The only thing we have to do is continue keeping His Word and not deny His name.
